Google Music hits Google TV in app, live in Android Market

updated 10:35 pm EST, Thu November 17, 2011

Google Music app comes to Google TV

Google in a late night update brought its Google Music update to the TV, giving it access to the service for the first time. The new TV app hinges on Google Music's cloud storage to stream the user's collection with an interface identical to that seen on smartphones and tablets, optimized for the ten-foot TV distance and larger screen. It includes playlists and other extras, although the lack of permanent storage means it can't pin tracks for offline listening.

The app needs the Google TV 2.0 update, which brings the Android 3.1-based interface and support for third-party apps. Google Music by its nature is currently limited to the US.

Those on phones and tablets, in the meantime, now have the promised access to the Google Music store. A quiet, device-independent update to Android Market now lets users shop the full store, including artist pages and recommendations. The music store too is US only and needs a device running Android 2.2 or later that can see the modern Market interface.
